MILLSBORO, Del.- A Wilmington woman will spend 15 years in prison in connection to a deadly home invasion in Millsboro.

Rachel Rentoul pleaded guilty to home invasion, first-degree robbery, and second-degree conspiracy in Sussex County Superior Court, the Delaware Department of Justice announced Friday. 

Police said that in January 2014, Cletis Nelson and William Hopkins were shot and killed during a home invasion robbery at a home on Harmon's Hill Road in Millsboro. 

Rentoul was arrested in connection to the home invasion back in July 2015 as part of Operation "In The House," a joint investigation from police agencies in Sussex and Kent counties. Rentoul was charged with assisting in the planning of the crime. 

Deputy Attorneys General Christopher Hutchinson, Martin Cosgrove, and Casey Ewart secured the plea and prison sentence, which will include Rentoul's participation in the Key program, and be followed by 6 months of Level IV Work Release, and two years at Level III probation.
